Bun in the Oven | Maternity Session Inspiration

By, November 18, 2016

We love maintaining a personal connection with our wedding couples, and seeing where life takes them. When a baby is on the way, we really enjoy going back and photographing the onetime newlyweds as parents-to-be. It is so much fun to get creative together, and the joy and excitement shows in the resulting photos :) As inspiration, we’ve collected a few of our favorite recent maternity photos, showing soon-to-be moms rockin’ the baby bump. Enjoy!

A Furry Tail Wedding | Tips for Having Your Dog in Your Big Day

By, April 11, 2016

At True Photography, we are all animal lovers, and think dogs make everything better (I mean, have you seen True?!)! So naturally, we feel that an exceptionally loyal pet has earned a place of honor at the wedding festivities. After all, a wedding day is a time to be surrounded by best buddies, family, and those closest to us. So why not extend the invite to our four-legged friends?

There are lots of different ways to incorporate Fido into your big day. Many people find that their pups love to be center stage and take on a central role, like as a ring bearer or dog of honor. Others keep their pup around to chill, provide moral support, and entertain the guests. For your inspiration, we’ve put together a few of our favorite recent doggie wedding photos. Sit, stay, and enjoy!

If you do plan to include your party animal in your big day, definitely make sure to mention it to us ahead of time. That way, we can plan for some “pawsitively” adorable photos!

Before carving out a role for your dog, you will want to check with your venue, and make sure they allow animals on the premises. Even if your venue has a restriction, there may still be a way to incorporate your dog into portraits during the day. We are always more than happy to include them!

During the wedding, we highly recommend appointing someone your dog knows, and letting them take over. That way, you can relax and enjoy your day. It’s also incredibly helpful to give your pup plenty of exercise beforehand, and to supply the handler with lots of prized treats and extra clean up bags.

There are many dog-friendly wedding venues throughout San Diego, including these properties:

Again, always talk with your venue beforehand to ensure Fido is welcome :) And be sure to check out more of our recent pet friendly weddings.
